A 20th anniversary edition of Eric Clapton and BB King’s Riding With The King is set to arrive on 26 June through Reprise Records. Included on the reissue are two previously unreleased tracks, Rollin’ And Tumblin’ and Let Me Love You Baby. Both were cut from the Grammy award-winning album’s original recording sessions. Take a listen to Rollin’ And Tumblin’ above.

Clapton and King’s rendition of the Delta blues standard, Rollin’ and Tumblin’ sees the two share vocal and guitar duties. Though the tune has been recorded and performed several times in the past by Clapton – both with Cream and solo – this version of the song is noticeably more moderate in pace.

The other previously recorded track on the reissue is the duo’s rendition of Willie Dixon’s Let Me Love You Baby, a tune famously recorded by Buddy Guy and Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Simon Climie – who served as producer on the Riding With The King sessions – returned to produce and mix the two songs for the reissue.

Several release formats have been planned for the release, including two vinyl editions: a 180-gram black double vinyl package and a 180-gram blue vinyl double LP, made available only through Clapton’s online store and some independent retailers. The vinyl edition of the album was mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Los Angeles.
